The Sky Streak
Built by Jim Carss from bits in his scrap box, should be a fast one when I've done the electronics.
This is an 8x6 prop but found a 10x5.5 one that will work much better.
With the 10x5.5 prop fitted ready to go.
Some minor adjustments needed to seal up the top cover better.
Test flight was impressive needs a little nose weight and a decent spinner, another testimony to Jim's build skills.
Speaking of Jim's skills we now have a display team of streaks.....oh this is going to be fun.
Needs a little work for a bigger battery, so moving the motor forward, flies very nice.
Rebuilt the nose section allowing a bigger battery and moving the COG forward.
After flight testing Jim's Streak we found we need the COG forward for more stable loops.
Looking good (c:
Full up flight weight 1.3lb, powered by a 11.1v 2200 mah battery produces 204W @ 19A.
Enough but not great, may look at a faster motor and smaller prop, the mk IV had a power output of over 400W!
End flying result folding 8x5 prop and 250W motor, mint!
